Welcome/Need Your Help
Welcome to all the new CWMs in our community. Please check out
our Facebook group and blog. I know a lot of you read the blog and
Facebook, but don’t post. I truly want us to be able to learn
from one another. So many times in my life I have learned from women
who have walked a path before me. Their wisdom is priceless.
We haven’t had a CWM interview issue recently due to not
having any CWMs who are willing to be interviewed. This is a wonderful
way to learn from one another and encourage one another. If you
are willing to be interviewed, send an email to Kimberly@kimberlychastain.com
and put interview in the subject heading.
I have been working on a project for a long time now to help parents
teach their children about God. I’m very close to being ready
to share it with everyone. So, stay tuned for a special announcement.
Article – Are you a Negative Nancy or a Positive
I don’t know about you, but this world seems hyper focused
on the negative. Do you ever have anyone call you to celebrate good
news? The news on TV, the radio, and just general society is focused
on the negative. I just thought the other day no one comes to work
and says, “I had a great commute this morning, everything
was wonderful, loved the traffic flow.” It seems negative
is our chief operating mode.
You can also see this in schools as well. Children don’t
rush to complement one another. They see who can have the best put
Do you feel your outlook has become more of a Negative Nancy or
can you force yourself to be a Positive Polly? Listen to some verses
Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and health
to the bones. Proverbs 16:24
Therefore, encourage one another and build one another up, just
as you are doing.
1 Thessalonians 5:11.
Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances;
for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 1 Thessalonians
For whatever was written in the former days was written for our
instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement
of the Scriptures we might have hope. Romans 15:4
We as Christians are called to be different. Due to the work that
Christ has done for us on the cross we are redeemed. We are children
of God and we should be the encouragers and hope bearers to those
around us. Yet, it is so easy to be dragged down into the mud and
negativity. We forget that God is victorious and has won the battle.
At home with your family do you think you are more negative or
positive? What about at work? What about in your marriage? Do you
bring people down or lift them up?
Can we shine the light of encouragement in a very dark world? Can
we be Positive Polly’s? Can we lead our children to follow
us in speaking words of encouragement? They watch and copy everything
we do. May we live out Philippians 4:8, “Finally, brothers,
whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever
is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is
any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about
Thanks to my sister, Karen who helped me to figure out Positive
Polly. All I could think of was the negative words. Very telling
and convicting!! I want to become a Positive Polly through the power
of the Holy Spirit. May my words be a blessing to others.
